Built in 1921, this distinctive home embodies all the charm and elegance of a bygone era. Designed by Howard Sill, renowned architect of many significant homes in Guilford and Roland Park, the house features many or his trademark details, including marble sills, leaded and beveled glass windows, ornate moldings, and beautiful hardwood Georgia pine floors.
The dramatic entry way, with its wrap around staircase, greets guests as they step into this unique foyer. Two stunning glass paned porches off the living and dining rooms add drama and additional space for seamless entertaining. The cook?s kitchen, with its breakfast nook overlooking the back and side yards, has ample room for the chef in you, but the serious chef also has the large kitchen in the lower level for doing some heavy-duty cooking. A private study with its secret staircase completes the first floor.
The second and third floors have generously sized bedrooms, and the primary bedroom has its own bathroom ensuite. This layout lends itself well to having home offices and study spaces.
The lower level is the biggest surprise of all. A huge open space with checkered floor and large wet bar just begs to host parties, but it doesn?t end there. The room is large enough to house a full-size pool table. And, there is an additional clubroom to watch TV or movies and more space for a ping pong table or a kids to play area. Then, there is the large furnace room, the workshop, the summer kitchen and a large powder room.
Last, but not least, the property has a lovely patio to relax and dine when the weather is warm, a huge side yard, a vegetable garden and a large detached 2-car garage with an attic.
All of this and more in close proximity to Hopkins Homewood Campus, the shops and restaurants of Charles Village and the Rotunda, the BMA, Union Memorial, the private schools to the north, ?. plus, in the Roland Park School District
